Cold snap hits football fixtures

The cold weather has forced Carlisle United's away match with Doncaster to be postponed

Carlisle match re-arranged

Carlisle United's postponed League One match away to Doncaster has been re-arranged for the evening of Tuesday 9th April.

The game at the Keepmoat Stadium had been scheduled for tonight but was called off because of a frozen pitch.

Blues boss Greg Abbott told the club's official website:

"There's a lot of football to be played between now and then so it's one we will think about as we get closer to the kick off date.

"In the mean time we want to make sure we continue to do our jobs properly so that we go into it in a good run of form.

"Doncaster have been really good with us with the way they handled this postponement. Nobody ever wants to lose a game to the weather but it was dealt with quickly and with minimum fuss.

"Our focus now is on the trip to Leyton Orient, so we will get the lads in over the next few days and start our preparations for that."

– Greg Abbott, Carlisle United Manager
